It a nice show with great view to the ocean, good for it value. The show is interesting. There interaction and lessoms before the show. Too bad don't have view of sunset. Food was average, nothing special.

Compared to luaus on other islands I've been to, this was much smaller and as such, a cozier, homier feel. Still entertaining, and the dancers were great. Auntie TuTu was a good MC for the event. Food was delicious. Recommend priority seating

This is how we spent our last night in Hawaii and I wouldn't chance a minute of it. We had preferred seating and were able to sit front and center. We had the best night ever. This was more than just eating a buffet and watching hula dancers. They had games on stage for the kids to try, you could... More

This Lu'au's quality and services starts from the moment you wait in line as they welcome you with local shell necklaces and warm "Aloha's" along with others who makes you feel at home with good humor, smiles, photos, and introductions to an evening you'll never forget! The welcoming ceremony, music, food (I went for 3rds! and sadly couldn't finish it... More

This was my first time to a luau and I wasn't sure what to expect. I was very impressed! Beautiful beach and park setting by the water. I loved the activities before dinner and the food was soooo good, especially the turkey and roasted pork which had a lovely smoky flavor. Also enjoyed the spicy poke. The show was amazing... More

This was incredible. Walking in, you could smell the foods, and it had a bunch of grassy areas- very different from the other 'Table in a Parking Lot' luaus. Great activities to be in- getting a temp tattoo, building the little leaf fishes, and trying to swing the fire sticks and cords (which has cushioning so you didn't get hurt).... More

This luau had fun things to do before the show(learn to hula, get tattoo, make a tai leaf fish, etc). There was also the opening of the imu to get the pig (and turkey's) out for the feast. Also the kings court arrived by outrigger and went on stage for presentation of the royal party. The food was plenty, it... More

Perhaps the view is better with this one than others, but I didn't find this luau to have anything that stood out to me. The food selection was ok. The smoked pig and turkey were good. For some reason, I felt the entertainment was forced. I don't know why. Perhaps because I could always go back for the next luau... More

We really liked this Luau. A beautiful setting right by the ocean. We were seated at a table very close to the stage and did not pay for preferential seating. It was not too crowded. (a nice amount of people). They had different activities you could participate in (making a craft, getting a tattoo (fake of course), learning a hula... More

They cooked the pig in the ground in a traditional way. That was amazing to watch in and of itself. It tasted amazing. IMO all of the food was 5 star quality. I have never really had anything exactly like it. Some very subtle flavors that just won't due justice to a less sophisticated palate. The hula lessons were so... More
